Helping Clients Thrive
There are few things in life that can cause as much worry, heartache and happiness than that of parenting. Every parent’s dream for their child is to be loved, happy and healthy. At times, the hope of that dream can be clouded by the chaos, stress and grief of life. My goal is to re-engage that parents’ dream through providing a fun, playful environment for children to work through their individual struggles. Whether developmental factors are impacting a child, anxiety has become crippling or problematic behaviors are feeling out of control, I can help support you and your family through the process toward relief. I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for success and reach their dreams, big or small.
What I Do For Fun
I’m a wife and mother of two who finds joy in spending time outdoors, baking and rooting on my favorite football team. I’m a children’s education coordinator at my church and love spending time giving back through volunteer efforts at Matthew 25 ministries. I love the work I do with children and families and am always looking for playful ways to reach my clients on their level. Whether through art, music, exercise or play, I am excited to help clients make progress in ways that fit their unique personality and interests.
